Wedding invitation design trends

June 6, 2017 · Print This Article

If you’re planning a wedding, you want to be sure that everything about your big day is just perfect. And that includes the wedding invitations and stationery. The design of wedding stationery begins with the “save the date”, and usually, a theme is carried through to invitations as well as printed items needed on the day.


At Minuteman Press, Claremont, we offer printing design services to help you create the perfect wedding stationery – everything from invitations, through to menus, table layouts and even printed napkins.


There are some beautiful wedding invitation design trends that first showed up last year and will continue to be popular in 2017. Here are our favourites:


  • Watercolours

Many designers are now able to offer watercolour inspired designs for wedding invitations. Watercolour images create a stunning, whimsical effect that is soft and has a hand drawn feel to it. From greenery to florals and washed backgrounds, watercolours are here to stay.


  • Bold Vintage florals

Floral designs will always be popular, but this trend has a specifically old-fashioned touch to it. Rather than being delicate, however, the trend is to use bold, oversized floral images combined with understated text. This look is especially great if you want a boho or vintage themed wedding.


  • Say it with calligraphy

Many wedding invitations are now being designed using text only. There are many exquisite calligraphy, brush and hand drawn fonts that can be combined to create a simple yet striking text based design. It’s also an opportunity to have a little fun with words and quotes appropriate to your wedding day.


  • Natural textures

This trend from a few years ago is becoming popular once again, with invitations and stationery printed on natural paper in earth tones and finished with materials such as lace, hessian, wood and twine. This can also be a budget friendly option, as print costs are lower and much of the assembly can be handled yourself.
